RAVEN LIGHT


Raven light shone on the tide
He heard her voice inside the dream
Calling him across the waves
Over the dark and untamed sea

He left the bones shivering
Took the dead bus out alone
Under the crisp winter stars
Along deserted motor lanes
Shining black syrupy tar
By fields of deathly silent grain
Over the sullen sleeping hills
Into the nameless creeping towns
Where tired people forgot their names

Through the saddened melting snow
Shining crow light bright and black
Shone across the famished sea
Toward the voice inside the dream

Come to me and be near
Hold me in a long embrace
Called the voice inside the dream

By ravenís light warm and pure
They kissed as if the bombs had dropped
They kissed as if the world was dead
They kissed as if the hangman waits
For their necks at dawn

Light shone from the ravenís wings
Onto the saddened melted snow
Into the crow light melting dream
Melting from his heart by dawn
